Perfume collectors, you need to add the Gabrielle Chanel fragrance to your scent wardrobe – it's set to be as iconic as the Chanel No. 5.
You don’t have to be a fragrance fan to have heard of Chanel’s iconic scents. The French fashion house boasts an incredible scent portfolio, which includes the famed Chanel No. 5: A scent so revered, it transformed the way women regarded perfumes. Now on the cusp of earning a similarly distinctive reputation is the Gabrielle Chanel fragrance: a new scent which pays tribute to the celebrated designer. We were lucky enough to experience this firsthand, so trust us when we say that the scent is seriously addictive – it’s currently our top choice for an everyday perfume.
The Gabrielle Chanel fragrance
Fragrance collectors have much reason to rejoice – the Gabrielle Chanel fragrance is the label’s first official scent launch in fifteen years. An homage to Coco Chanel’s real name, the perfume celebrates her penchant for rule-breaking, unquenchable thirst for fashion and extraordinary courage. Gabrielle Chanel redefined femininity and became an icon for women everywhere, for all time. Her namesake scent embodies the Chanel woman: The elegant rebel at heart.
Much like other Chanel fragrances, the Gabrielle Chanel fragrance is a dream to display. Years of effort resulted in a breathtakingly fine glass bevelled bottle, with exceptionally thin walls and a barely-there base. The walls of the bottle converge in the center, where the signature square of Chanel fragrances sits to allow as much light as possible to reflect the gorgeous golden hues of the perfume.
In its creation, famed perfumer Olivier Polge balanced the intensity of jasmine with ylang ylang (made velvety with white musk), and orange blossom fused with refreshing mandarin peel, grapefruit zest and blackcurrant. Adding to this are hints of creamy tuberose with milky sandalwood. The result is a feminine floral fragrance, which fades to reveal more subtle and musky notes.
